Denying the Trinity?

Theological confusion concerning the Trinity: “Elohim is plural but has absolutely nothing to do with trinity… It means powerful, those who God made powerful carries the title of Elohim. That’s the plurality of the word.”

Response to the one denying the Trinity…

Jesus, in John 10:34, quoted Psalm 82:6 where Elohim-gods is used to denote judges-magistrates, those in power and those who rule over the people via God’s authority…but these are men, not Deity. Note: “This use of the word “gods” to refer to humans is rare, but it is found elsewhere in the Old Testament. For example, when God sent Moses to Pharaoh, He said, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh” (Exodus 7:1). This simply means that Moses, as the messenger of God, was speaking God’s words and would therefore be God’s representative to the king. The Hebrew word Elohim is translated “judges” in Exodus 21:6 and 22:8, 9, and 28.” (Source: GotQuestions)

Discussion…

Elohim, Genesis 1:1, is a plural noun with a singular verb. In Genesis 1:2, we’re introduced to the 3rd-Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit and in John 1, the Creator in Elohim as per Genesis 1:1 is introduced as Yeshua-Jesus Christ the Son i.e. the Living “Word” of God. Though I cannot adequately explain the Trinity, my God has chosen to reveal Himself in a Trinity, a Triune God that is revealed in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and these Three are co-equal as One-God while an agreed upon delineation in authority is present among the Godhead.

Why God has chosen to do this, I do not know but I cannot deny the fact that my Lord has introduced Himself in this way. It is very likely that because God is Spirit (John 4:24) and His Plan for redemption involved manifesting in flesh (Genesis 3:14-15; Matthew 1:23) that the Godhead appears in a division of Three as God would clothe Himself in flesh and offer Himself as the sacrificial Lamb for our sin thus requiring a manifestation of God in the flesh in order to take upon Himself the sin of the World; And this same God, in His resurrected body, would leave the corruption of the World yet in Spirit He would indwell the body of those who have trusted in Jesus Christ as Lord…it is the Spirit of God dwelling in the body of the faithful that secures them in God’s righteousness forever and walks with them daily in the process of sanctification as they are prepared for a life of service in Eternity. This is truly a mystery beyond the mind of man.
